Whether you’re an up-and-comer or a seasoned vet, graphic design requires a lot of work that can leave you feeling overwhelmed, overworked, or stressed. Truth be told, sitting in front of your computer doesn’t always help you rid yourself of fatigue or “designer’s block.” Luckily, you don’t have to be stuck sitting in one place to get your work done, or at the very least, to sketch out some ideas when inspiration strikes.
Thanks to creative app developers, you can now take your work with you wherever you are, or at least jot down those epiphanies that tend to show up when you’re not at the office. Today, I present to you 22 creative iPhone apps ranging both from free to pricey and from designer resources to actual production apps. These should hopefully help you out in the long run by saving time, reducing stress, and capturing ideas that would otherwise go forgotten.
